Astrid is a smart, affectionate and playful girl. She has TONS of personality and has completely blossomed since she came into TCR care. When she first arrived she was emaciated, had never been to a vet and just huddled in a corner shaking. But she now leaps into the air for her toys like LeBron James and she actually plays fetch. Really! She has an adorable chocolate milk moustache and if she could hold a pencil in her paw, we swear that she’d play Sudoku! She also decided on her own to contribute to her foster family household in several ways. For example, she’ll stroke and lick your hair to help you in your personal grooming (but only if you let her of course). She is a very focused bug hunter. And she has taken it upon herself to be a personal alarm clock in the morning. Just at the right time (or maybe an hour before) she’ll come and wake you up and then return every five minutes like a furry Snooze button.
Astrid occasionally has a feisty moment if she gets frightened, so we recommend no small children. We’re not sure how she is with dogs but would probably be OK if the dog was really friendly. She might be best as an only cat although she did get along really well with her foster brother, mainly because he was super friendly and not afraid of her. Astrid is looking for the right family who will love her just for who she is... will you?
